John Gray & Co Community Assistance Programme

Our pledge to help our local communities

John Gray & Co Funeral Directors has been serving the community of North Down for over 60 years and was established in Central Avenue in 1961. With support from parent company, Funeral Partners, we have launched the John Gray & Co Community Assistance Programme, to benefit the local communities in Bangor, Holywood and Newtownards.

We award small grants of £300 to small, local community initiatives. Our aim with the John Gray & Co Community Assistance Programme is to connect and engage with projects in our local communities to help them develop.
